Makeup for the Busy Mom

       Wow it has been a while! But from the title you can see what I have up to! Busy busy Mom here... and I noticed how easy it is to let ones self go.... I was rocking some CraZy eyebrows a few weeks ago! Then I just got sick of looking like I was so run down.
Here are the steps I took to getting back on track!!

*Cleaned out my collection. I tossed mascara, lipglosses, and liquid foundations.
*These wipes are fast and dual textured!
*Cleaned and separated my brushes. I took a hard look at which brushes I was really really going to use daily. The rest I put in brush rolls. This might not be something you have to do... but I have well over 100 brushes ...rut ruh.
*Lined up my skincare. I switched from face washes back to remover wipes and Aveeno's pre-everything disc. I find those quick and I can use them with one hand;-)
*Moved some stuff around. I no longer have a makeup desk... (I know right!!! But the new baby needed a spot to sleep:-)) So things like MAC Brush cleanser and Fix+ moved into the bathroom. Note about bathroom storage. It is best to only keep products that are not temperature sensitive AND covered or sealed there. Brushes and general makeup can get bacteria build up fast. If you must store in the bathroom... move items as far from toilet and tub as possible. And just for extra protection spot clean brushes before use.
*I went back to basic makeup. It has to be fast when it comes to being busy... or I guess I could wake up at 5am (yeah right) So it's just clean, prep, foundation, brows, long lasting liner, mascara, touch of blush and I have been using liner to fill the lip then adding a gloss. Done! Some this like this...

*The last thing I did was trim my makeup bag... I now carry the bare essentials in the makeup bag since I now have diapers and wipes also in my purse!!

Trust me it was super hard going from full face to not a scratch... but coming back to a happy medium was great. I also plan on visiting my old store to see the new trends... so I can start feeling connected again!!!
Being a mother of 3 little boys (who are crazy, but fun) is hard work... but not impossible! And looking halfway decent is possible.
Tell me how you moms out there do it? Share some of your secrets below!!!
